Sasha Pivovarova – also known as Sasha P – is not just any regular model. When she was first discovered in her hometown of Moscow, Russia, she was an art student at university. Italian Prada, on the other hand, had other plans with the gorge lady – “give her an exclusive, three-year-contract” – Prada-people said in Italian (I think?) – and so they did, and Sasha P moved to NYC and began her hectic adventure as one of the most sought-after models on the planet. And as icing on her beautiful muffin (… did that sound wrong?) she has now defined a completely new type a beauty. CUDOS. Contracts with the biggest fashion-houses in the world, countless magazine covers – five of these for the prestigious Italian Vogue – is part of her fairytale career. And in this very moment, the Sasha P-lady can be experienced in the current HUGO image campaign, shot in a deserted, icy hotel building in Manhattan, NYC.
… and the art is constantly part of her art-ittude – on and off shoots. She scrambles and scribbles everywhere, and on anything. Not only is she an angle transcended the Earth, she has also made sure that she will be remembered after she flies back home. Her art has been widely exhibited, and even published in French Vogue – and right now Sasha P and Karl Lagerfeld are illustrating a book together – well, just another day at the office.
